  • We visit 4 pieces in 1 hour with a guide which gives you - in English - a concentrate of what was the daily life of a rich inhabitant of Edinburgh between 16th and 18th: many anecdotes, an unusual place full of history; exciting.

  • Fascinating Edinburgh tenement from early 1600s with lots of detail imparted on the tour. Unfortunately it can only be visited on a guided tour and advanced booking is recommended. Our guide was a tad eccentric and wandered off piste a lot in his rambling perorations but this did provide some charm for at least the English native speakers on our tour.
  • Only able to visit via guided tour which were all booked up. Would have liked to have walked aroumd mydelf.
  • Although the tour is interesting enough, I wouldn't pay if I wasn't a National Trust Member. If you are a member, go right ahead (and book in advance if it's holiday time).
  • Very historic building. Sells interesting things but can get crowded.
  • Amazing gift shop with a really good selection of Scottish products that are unique and nothing like the tourist shops on the Mile. Really enjoyed the historic tour and our holiday flat couldn't have been in a better address; so comfy and cosy too!. Staff are really friendly and helpful - and the best thing is that all the proceeds help to conserve the building which is about 500 years hold!

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
